do you think the highest residential floor will be the one under the 2 larger floors below the crown? if so ive worked out the floor is 25m below top, wich equates to 585m/1920ft

I was told by a credible source that the top two floors will be a 10,000 square feet penthouse that will be close to $40 million.
